I just checked linux-next and it misses nearly all of the patches I sent
back in August and I'm sure you had them in your staging tree. Only the
first out of 8 are applied
The reason for this may be that yet another nvec cleanup patch was applied
to linux-next via the kernel mailing list
88d94e301e416f672b2991af3404aebfb6277b2c in linux-next) instead of going
through linux driver project ML (or notify the driver author) and the
staging tree, which made the 2nd patch of my series fail to merge...
Grrr, so how to proceed now? As far as I can see, we have two options:
- wait for staging to come back
- rebase against linux-next (including the patches which are in
staging, but missing in linux-next)
